Trumbull Higgins, a military historian and an author,
died of a heart attack yesterday at St. Luke's
Hospital. He was 70 years old and lived in Manhattan.
Mr. Higgins, who once described himself as ''a
specialist in military fiasco,'' was a professor of
history at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice
and wrote numerous books on military history,
concentrating on strategy and policy decisions during
World War II, the Korean War and the Bay of Pigs
His latest book, ''The Perfect Failure,'' published in
1987 by W. W. Norton & Company, is a case study of the
ill-fated Bay of Pigs operation. He concluded that
President John F. Kennedy inherited a half-baked plan
for the invasion of Cuba, which was prepared by the
Central Intelligence Agency under President Dwight D.
Among his earlier works was ''Winston Churchill and
the Second Front,'' published in 1957 by Oxford
University Press. It was a study of the Allied
decision to invade North Africa in 1942, rather than
to make an early direct assault on Nazi forces across
the English Channel. He termed Churchill's war
policies ''unrealistic and near-disastrous.''
-Turned to Korean Conflict-
After writing several books on most phases of World
War II, Mr. Higgins turned his attention to the Korean
conflict in, ''Korea and the Fall of MacArthur: A
Precis in Limited War,'' published in 1960 by Oxford.
Mr. Higgins viewed the Korean conflict in terms of the
disagreements between American policymakers over
strategy. On the one side was Gen. Douglas MacArthur,
who wanted to blockade and bomb China; on the other
was President Harry S. Truman and the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, who feared bringing war on China.
Mr. Higgins was a life-long resident of Manhattan. He
graduated from Princeton in 1941 and earned his
doctorate in history there in 1951. He lectured often
at the National War College in Washington.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara Guest; a son,
Jonathan of Santa Cruz, Calif.; a step-daughter,
Hadley Haden-Guest of Manhattan, and two sisters,
Faith McCurdy of Cold Spring Harbor, L.I., and Anita
Salembier of Oyster Bay, L.I.

TRUMBULL DIED of a heart attack at St. Luke's Hospital
in N.Y.C. Apr. 25,1990. He was a military historian
and an author who once described himself as "a
specialist in military fiasco." At the time of his
death, he was a professor of history at the John Jay
College of Criminal justice in N.Y.C. and had written
numerous books on military history.
Trumbull came to Princeton via Choate, majored in
history, and was a member of Court. He received a
master's from Princeton in 1946 and a Ph.D. in 1951.
Trumbull was described as a restless, incessant
traveler, often preferring the journey to the
destination. ion. He possessed a bright, inquiring,
and provocative mind equipped with an analytic method
prepared to probe his opponent's target at its weakest
spot. It could also be said that he worked all the
time, even while he idled.
He and his widow, Barbara, who were married for 35
years, shared an interesting life centered on travel,
literature (her field), and an exploration of the
ethos of military history, in which Trumbull centered
on contemporary wars.
To Barbara; his stepdaughter, Hadley HadenGuest; his
son, Jonathan; and to the other members of his family;
the Class extends its most sincere condolences.

Obituary of his wife Barbara Guest

Barbara Guest, 85; Modernist Poet Inspired by Abstract
By Mary Rourke - Times Staff Writer
March 10, 2006
Barbara Guest, a Modernist poet inspired by Abstract
Expressionist artists Jackson Pollock and Willem de
Kooning who was the only woman included in the New
York School of poets that emerged in the late 1950s,
has died. She was 85.
Guest died Feb. 15 in Berkeley of complications from
The author of more than 20 books of poetry, plays,
fiction and biography, Guest wrote in unrhymed verses.
Critics noted that she held lyrical or musical sound
and material images in tension in her work.
To create a particular visual effect and to emphasize
certain words in her verses, she made liberal use of
white space on the page.
One line might be composed of a single word, followed
by a line of five or six words.
Like other members of the New York School that
included John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch and
James Schuyler, Guest brought poetry and art together
in her work. Her first book of verse — "The Location
of Things" (1960) — was published under the imprint of
Tibor de Nagy, a prominent art gallery in New York
Other books of her poetry include "The Countess From
Minneapolis" (1976) and "The Tuerler Losses" (1980).
Guest wrote about nature as well as city life, and
once said her poems were more about language than
ideas. In the poem "A Handbook of Surfing" (1968), she
refers to waxed boards, wipeouts and other terms best
known to surfers, but did so in a way that painted
word pictures any reader can grasp.
"Blue Stairs" (1968) describes a staircase. The
"radiant deepness" of its span is "disarming as one
who executes robbers," she wrote.
Many of her poems are brief. "Echoes" from her book
"The Red Gaze" in 2004 reads:
Once more riding down to Venice on borrowed horses,
The air free of misdemeanor, at rest in the inns of
Once again whiteness like the white chandelier.
Echoes of other poems …
"In short stanzas and single lines that pour over the
page, Guest writes as if recording the topmost level
of impressions that have roots in unfathomable
histories," wrote a reviewer for Publisher's Weekly.
"The diction of myth and fairy tale mixes freely with
Guest was well established as a poet when she wrote
"Seeking Air" (1978), an experimental novel that is
described as a series of prose poems and is compared
to a diary. Six years later, Guest wrote a biography
of Hilda Doolittle, a 20th century American poet and
muse-like character whose friends included novelist
D.H. Lawrence and poet Ezra Pound.
Guest's book "Herself Defined: The Poet H.D. and Her
World" was praised as a "shimmering, delicately
patterned narrative" in a New York Times review by
Michiko Katutani. However, another reviewer, Katha
Pollitt in the New York Times, wrote that Guest
offered "no approach of her own beyond plot synopses
and cryptic judgments."
Born Barbara Pinson in Wilmington, N.C., she was the
daughter of a probation officer who moved the family
to Florida when she was young. She grew up in several
Florida towns. At age 11 she moved to Los Angeles to
live with relatives. She enrolled at UCLA and
transferred to UC Berkeley where she graduated with a
bachelor's degree in English in 1943.
After college, Guest moved to New York City and was an
art reviewer for Art News magazine through most of the
After her early success as a poet, she went through a
period of comparative obscurity but found a new
audience in the early 1990s. Members of a younger
generation — the "language poets" including Charles
Bernstein — claimed her as their inspiration. In 1999
she received the Robert Frost Medal for lifetime
achievement from the Poetry Society of America.
Guest was married three times — first to John Dudley,
a painter and writer. Their marriage ended in divorce
in the late 1940s. She then married Stephen Guest, a
translator. The couple had one child — a daughter,
Hadley Guest — before divorcing in 1954. That year she
married Trumbull Higgins, a military historian. They
had one child: a son, Jonathan Higgins. Trumbull
Higgins died in 1990.
In recent years, Guest lived with her daughter in
Berkeley. She is survived by her two children.

Marion Bigelow Higgins dies at Leisure World at age of 112
Friday, March 3, 2006 Seal Beach, Calif. (AP) --
Marion Bigelow Higgins, recognized as the oldest person in California, has died of congestive heart
failure at her home in Leisure World. She was 112. Higgins was recognized as the oldest person in
California, the sixth oldest in the United States and the 11th oldest in the world, according to an Orange
County Register report on Friday.
Officials with the state Department of Aging could not immediately verify Friday whether she was California's
Funeral arrangements for Higgins, who died Thursday, were pending, relatives said.
"She finally began to show her age in recent months after 112 years of remarkably good health. Her mind
remained sharp and attitude upbeat," her family said in a prepared statement. "She was ready and perhaps
eager for the Lord to take her and she went peacefully."
Higgins, who was born in New York on June 26, 1893, participated in a study of
"supercentenarians" conducted by the Gerontology Research Group at the
University of California, Los Angeles.
In 2004, she was one of two "supercentenarians" featured in a National Public Radio story about people
over 110. Higgins, who at the time listened to books on tape, attended yard sales and sang daily, said she
was "generally healthy" despite being blind and unable to walk.

Jazz Drummer Billy Higgins Dies at Age 64
Updated 2:10 PM ET May 4, 2001
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Jazz drummer Billy Higgins,
who helped saxophonist Ornette Coleman develop his
revolutionary "free-jazz" style in the late 1950s, has
died at age 64 while awaiting his second liver
transplant, associates said on Friday.
Higgins, one of the most frequently recorded jazz
drummers and a mainstay of the Los Angeles jazz scene,
died at Daniel Freeman hospital where he was admitted
with pneumonia a few days ago.
He recorded with many jazz greats such as Coleman,
Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Charles
Lloyd, Milt Jackson, Herbie Hancock and Lee Morgan and
was famed for a swinging style that went far beyond genre.
Higgins is the drummer on such seminal Coleman
recordings as "The Shape of Jazz to Come," "This is
Our Music," and "Something Else." He shared drumming
duties with Ed Blackwell on the famed album, "Free
Jazz," whose cover by abstract expressionist Jackson
Pollock paid tribute to the splashing sound of the music inside.
Born in Los Angeles, Higgins started playing drums
when a child and began working with Coleman when in
his early 20s. He recorded with Coleman in the
late 1950s and early 1960s and then recorded on the
Blue Note label during the heyday of its "hard bop"
period. He also played extensively with Rollins
and pianist Cedar Walton during the 1960s.
Higginsport Ohio and founder Colonel Robert Higgins
Historically, Higginsport lies in that part of Ohio
which was part of the Virginia Military Lands - an
area set aside to be used as payment for the services
of Revolutionary War veterans of the colony of
Virginia. Although the coffers of the government of
our fledgling country were bare, it was rich with land
that was rapidly being claimed and settled. Many of
the large older homes in the area have a decided
"Virginia" style of architecture.
The village of Higginsport (first platted and recorded
as White Haven in 1816) was founded by Colonel Robert
Higgins, a Revolutionary War officer who received
1,000 acres of land for his services to the country.
Colonel Higgins, who was born in Virginia, left his
large plantation on the South Branch of the Potomac
River, and emigrated with his family to Kentucky in
1798 - across the river from his survey in Lewis
Township, OH. Col Higgins and his family crossed the
Ohio River in spring of 1799, and occupied a crude
cabin in what is now the village of Higginsport. Mrs.
Mary Higgins (nee Joliffe), who died in 1806, was the
first person buried in the Higginsport Cemetery.
Subsequently, Col. Higgins donated the land for a
public cemetery to the village of Higginsport
